A colorful country known for its relaxed lifestyle, vibrant nightlife, excellent food, and world-famous folklore and festivals, Spain boasts a huge number of World Heritage Sites and other spectacular places to visit. It also deserves its reputation as a beach vacation destination; the Western edge of the Mediterranean Sea is home to some of the world’s top beaches. But Spain’s geography is so much more than just soft, sandy shores. Its landscapes are as diverse as its people, ranging from lush meadows and snowy mountains to huge marshes and sprawling deserts. The countryside bursts with unspoiled villages of timeless beauty and old-world charm, as well as vast and varied nature preserves.

Beaches · Landmarks · Nightlife
The most tranquil of the Balearic Islands, Minorca or Menorca is a protected biosphere reserve featuring a remarkably unspoiled nature. Despite its small size, this island possesses just as many beaches as its bigger siblings, making it a perfect holiday destination. Here adventurous travelers have the opportunity to leisurely explore the natural attractions that abound, and quite possibly could have a pristine beach all to themselves. But more than just these untouched beaches and secluded bays along the coast, the island does have several modern yet very peaceful resorts, noted for a wide range of outstanding tourist facilities and a myriad of alfresco dining options.
